. . . and it was pretty good! I had spaghetti and meatballs - the meatballs were perfect and plentiful (not just ground beef but pork and veal as well - makes all the difference). BF had filet mignon - totally overcooked (he ordered medium, and it was well done) but the quality of the meat was apparent and he enjoyed it. My only disappointment was that the waitress never called me hon. And we did try to eat at the Wharf Rat but there was a 45 minute wait - at 9:30 pm. So we kept going.
Thanks for the tip - it was a good one in a sea of chain restaurants.
